Pep Band

Eighth Grade Pep Band Night at VHHS

As you can tell from the smiles, the 2017 version of the combined Middle South/Middle North/VHHS Pep Band evening on Sept. 8 was filled with fun, friendship and music. What a great way for the eighth graders to get a taste of what’s next in high school band on Friday nights. The evening started with a gathering for a dinner provided by the VHHS Band Parents. After getting the band members all set up with music and rehearsing for 20 minutes, it was off to the stadium for an exciting evening together, cheering on the VHHS football team and all the other fun that goes with a Friday night game. The massed bands performed on the track for a packed crowd, much to the delight of everyone there. Following the performance, the Band Parents stepped up again with hot chocolate for everyone before heading home after a long, wonderful day.
